    HELP!!! I'm 28 days late!
    Lelandsmomma2010 posted:
    Well my periods are normally right on time each month (28 day cycle)... My last period was October 26-29, me and my husband have been trying to conceive for about a yr and half... We've came close & then were disappointment by aunt flo's visit. This time I have a gut feeling that I'm pregnant but each hpt that I take has been (-) negative... I have taken at least 4-6 hpt & I'm starting to get discouraged that I haven't received my period or a (+) test result. I believe I have had positive pregnancy symptoms, like; queasiness (the gaggy feeling like I'm gunna be sick), recurring headaches, frequent bathroom breaks, gassy, feeling tired, bloating, emotional (very easily hurt), or moody/cranky, light cramping (mainly on my left side), low back pain (more painful if on my feet for long period of time), I'll be hungry then when I make something to eat or order when it's in front of me I have no sensation to eat it, like it turns my stomach, but the hungry feeling is still there (weird)... I'm not under any kind of stress, nor have I been ill, ive maintained the same weight... I'm not understanding why my test results have been (-) negative, could it be I'm not pregnant or that its too early to detect? I remember when I was pregnant with my son (who is now 6) that it took awhile to show a hpt, when I went to the doctors for the follow up & ultra sound I was 8 wks and 4 days, so I'm wondering if I just don't produce a high level or hormone to detect in a early hpt. I'm going to take another test possibly at the end of this week which if I did the correct math calculation I'd be 8 wks this weekend, in doing so I'm praying for a (+) positive result. I'm looking for some in courage meant or some insight from other women who have been or in my same situation as I. Thank you for reading and I look forward to getting some positive feedback.

    Some women either take longer to show on a test or never do. Since you've now pretty much missed two periods, I'd go to the doctor for a blood test.

    Well I have an appointment after Christmas... But not to get personal but last night i was having extreme low back pain just could sleep nor get comfy... I finally feel asleep this morning when I woke up from my nap... After 30 days i think i started... But this isnt like another period I've ever had... Please excuse me I'm about to get personal. It's very watery, with a dark brownish red color... Only there when I wipe.. Talked to my sister & she said pregnant women sometimes do bleed.... I never knew that cuz it wasn't an issue with my last pregnancy. So should I rule out pregnancy or still keep hope that I am..? I'm still keeping my appointment seeing I'm due for a yrly... This has become very discouraging for me & my husband.

    Some positive feedback, always helps... Thnxs for replying

    Your sister is right; some women do have bleeding during pregnancy. Since the bleeding is out-of-character for your normal period, there is still a chance.
